Those B-25s take off in a ridiculously short distance! Amazing. Like watching a Lysander or a Storch, they just lift up the wheels & they're up.

 

I'd love to see them landing on the carrier, but that's a risk too far.

If you look carefully, you can see a couple floating in the Pacific.

 

Historical accuracy to a tee.

I think that might change with a full fuel load (plus auxiliary tank), and a bellyful of 500 pounders.

That's OK, they can catapult them off with full bomb loads & fuel.

 

Although I'm not confident in which order the bits of B-25 would take to the air, or maybe watch as the nosewheel makes its way down the carrier, unhindered by being attached to an actual airframe.

Stunning Smitty, when did this happen? Not sure if the health and safety mafia would allow this now!...........

It was to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the end of the war, so 95.

This is breathtaking!

Those elegant old birds taking off took me  into a whole other world for a while 

Thank you for posting this.

now - how the f**k did they get them in board in the first place? I’m guessing cranes?  Those old birds are too valuable to have risked an actual landing...?
